The Alpine Space project SEAP_Alps is finalist of the European Commission Award for good practices and innovative projects in regional development in the "Energy Union: Climate action" category.
SEAP_Alps has adapted an EU Covenant of Mayors concept, the SEAP (Sustainable Energy Action Plans), to Alpine regions, thereby providing local authorities with a joint methodology for energy and climate adaptation planning. In order to assist Alpine Space decision makers in drafting SEAPs in their own communities, the project has provided a platform for knowledge transfer and capacity building. Furthermore, SEAP_Alps has tested a new public-private investment concept, which would allow municipalities to meet energy-efficiency requirements for buildings.
The results of the SEAP_Alps projects are now being built on in the framework of the PEACE_Alps project.
The project will be presented at an exhibition stand on 09 October 2017 as part of the opening event of the European Week of Regions and Cities, in Brussels.
The RegioStars Awards ceremony will take place on 10th of October 2017 in Brussels - second evening of the European Week of Regions and Cities, in the Square, Brussels.
